I have sorted out the RSB so all these packages build cleanly and in a 
manner we can support. I need to sort a few things out then I hope to 
push the changes.

The Microwindows support is messy. The package references a personal 
github repo, the RSB support is only for Linux and Microwindows is in 
need of build system attention. Microwindows build support is gcc, gnu 
make, and RTEMS_MAKEFILE_PATH centric and this last one is a dead end. 
No other 3rd party package needs this file. Forcing gcc for the host 
means a standard FreeBSD install does not work.

Microwindows can be hacked so we can make it build however where do we 
keep the patches and support long term. I am not comfortable with a 
personal repo that could change at any point in time, it is personal 
after all.
